No love lost here. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd doesn’t seem sad that two of the tres amigas are no longer filming. Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge will not return to the franchise when filming resumes.
This has left many fans wondering how Kelly will handle having Shannon Beador, aka the last amiga, around. And I think it’s fair to say Kelly doesn’t seem the least bit worried.
In the cast shakeup heard around the world–OK–in Housewife Land–the departures of OG Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County were recently announced. After Vicki’s demotion to Friend of last season, her exit was not a total shock. Tamra’s departure was a little more surprising. Housewife OG’s and long-time cast members are probably shaking in their Louboutins–if they are smart and their reality egos allow for reflections on their Housewife status.
Vicki went out relatively classy–thanking her fans for their support. Tamra took her leave when she was only offered three episodes to wrap up her storyline. Then she appeared to unfollow her former co-stars on Instagram. Who could blame her? Being shown the door has to sting. If all that wasn’t enough, both Vicki and Tamra have more fallout to deal with from their lives as former Housewives–besides tarnished reputations, that is.
Fans are wondering who will join Real Housewives of Orange County after the news broke that Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are done with the show. Since nothing else has been announced, it’s safe to assume that Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson, aand Braunwyn Windham-Burke will be back for Season 15. Nevertheless, it’s unclear if they’ll be full-time or if they’ll get demoted to a part-time role, like Vicki was for Season 14.
Most likely, nothing will be “officially” confirmed until Season 15 has finished filming and the network is gearing up to promote the show, but there is one name floating around about a possible new cast member.
As expected, Vicki Gunvalson is not handling her exit from Real Housewives of Orange County very well. She talked shit about Andy Cohen after he wrote a sentimental and kind Instagram caption about her.
And now, Vicki is resuming a Twitter feud with Emily Simpson…. from December 2019. Girl, let it go. Vicki
may have been may be the reality TV veteran, but Emily totally smoked her, again.
Bitter, much? Apparently, Tamra Judge has unfollowed everyone after announcing her exit from Real Housewives of Orange County.
Tamra “left the show on her own terms” aka she got offered a part-time role and turned it down because she wanted to hold an orange. And I guess she’s really moving on, completely.
Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 came through. Or at least it was a lot better than the previous couple of seasons. Still, there’s some work to be done.
Vicki Gunvalson was famously demoted from Real Housewife to Friend of the Housewives at the start of Season 14. The internet has been rumbling with rumors about casting changes for Season 15. Some fans want RHOC to clean house completely. Well, the infamous Radar Online came through with some casting “news,” but Andy Cohen completely denied the claims.
Real Housewives of Orange County was filled with drama this season. The unthinkable happened when “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted to being a Friend of the Housewives. Her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, even popped the question. But nothing distracted Vicki from trying to grab her RHOC orange back. She brought up a rumor (along with Tamra Judge’s help) that co-star Kelly Dodd was a participant in a sex train. Stay classy, Tamra and Vicki.
Kelly infuriated Tamra and Shannon Beador by involving herself in Jim Bellino’s $1 million dollar lawsuit against them. Shannon and Tamra are drowning in legal bills from the lawsuit.
Does Tamra Judge have something on Shannon Beador? I’m not trying to start rumors, but I am just trying to wrap my head around (what appears to be) Shannon’s blind loyalty. Did she not see the several flashback scenes with Tamra trash-talking Shannon, unprovoked mind you? Oh, right. Tamra says that she never said those things (that we all saw on camera). Instead, she blamed it on Kelly Dodd.
Shannon, you’re in danger girl. With a best friend like Tamra, who needs enemies? Even with all the video footage as evidence, Shannon has nothing against her BFF. Instead, they are united in their quest to take down Kelly Dodd (and get rid of her orange). Good luck with that one.
